About this Episode

Florida’s unemployment office had so much trouble sending out checks during the COVID-19 crisis, it’s trying to get some of that money back.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Democrats have been complaining about the unemployment system for months and they’ve produced a fix. Sunrise checks out their bill to raise benefits and change the mindset at the state unemployment office.

— The state has passed another statistical milestone in the COVID-19 crisis: More than 15,000 Floridians have now been killed by the coronavirus. When you include victims from other states or countries who died in Florida, the total is now 15,248.

— Republican leaders in Tallahassee are refusing to call a Special Session to deal with COVID-19, but rank and file lawmakers say it’s going to be their No. 1 issue in March when the 2021 Session begins.

— And finally, a Florida man who doesn’t know if the Holocaust actually happened, but he does know one thing for sure — he’s getting his job back.
